if I ever get a time machine, can I jump to a time where there will be clickbait ads a lá “hot enbies in your area”?
Vodka is unrelated. Water is defined as “a lot of unnessecary text that serves as a filler for content where the piece is lacking in content”, often used in essays to get the word count up.
you wanna know what’s the best part of #TikTok? #servicedog videos. I just love watching them for some resson
If you got a circular dependency in your microservices, it might mean that your microservices aren’t micro enough!
When scrolling through news on Google Now feed (or is it called Discover now?) I started to realize the fact that most news outlets are utterly useless.
In age of information all that a company has to do to announce something is publish an article on their own website. If someone made something, they post in a blog.
The news outlets (tech news are especially guilty of it) just wrap the real news in what we Russians call water - often losing a lot of original meaning behind the post by confusing terminology and trying to explain something to a person who doesn’t understand tech. And while the last objective seems great, the news don’t do a great job at that.
Nowadays all I see in news are crude retellings of press releases and clickbait titles. Newspapers have become a bubble, an enterprise existing only to show ads to users. When I scroll through news, I see adverts each three paragraphs, taking more space on my screen than the content I came for. (That’s why I use adblockers) Is this the media we wanted? No. Definitely not.
We want free media. Freedom of expression, non-intrusive ads (if ads at all, but come on, I ain’t got money for subscribing to a thousand different newspapers) and original content. Maybe the concept of IndieWeb could provide all of that? I think so!
And if you still want to provide a useful outlet for the content on a single topic, make a syndication hub that will pull blog posts from authors’ websites if they want to be featured. In fact, we already have one - IndieNews - a news feed for everything IndieWeb-related. Just post a webmention if you wanna get featured!
so I’m watching #OrangeIsTheNewBlack and my Google Chrome window is full of tabs with Wikipedia articles on US prison facilities. I guess I’ll know a lot more about it than I did before by the end of first season!
